I have stayed at many hostels but never experienced such an unpleasant stay before. The service is as unfriendly as can be. I can just recommend everyone to stick to the "houserules" that were never shown or mentioned to us, otherwise you might end up with paying fees of €80 or more. Apart from that it smells awkwardly on every... More

I stayed here in this hostel one summer for a few nights with a group of friends, it was really busy in the hostel but staff seemed friendly! The rooms were really basic, but clean which was the main thing. The great thing about this hostel is the location, it was just perfect for a few nights and exploring the... More

This is by no means the best hostel in the world, but by no means is it the most expensive. It is a typical, clean, reasonably well appointed hostel. What it does boast however, is possibly the best location in Berlin for sightseeing being within easy reach of Checkpoint Charlie and it's associated museums and the Brandenburg gate and it's...

The hostel is in a great location, next to the tube stop with 5 mins walk of main attractions yet on quiet side street so no noise at nights. The staff are very friendly and speak most languages. There is a luggage room that they allow you to use for early arrivals /late departures. Rooms are clean and modern but... More

Overall this hostel was great- it was more like a hotel, we had our own kettle in our room, we had comfortable clean bedrooms and linen, breckfast was nice- lovely crusty bread (mmmm), and the location was great- 10/15 min walk from anywhere really. The only downsides was that the walls of the rooms are a bit thin and we... More

This place is all about location. it is just a few minutes walk from important sites in the city. A metro station is also around the corner and the staff are very helpful. If you need to get somewhere, they will help. There is also a bar in here and a supermarket called Ullrich right around the corner which I... More
